The president lobbied Fox Business folks on Twitter right after Maria Bartiromo, Steve Forbes, and Dagan McDonald conducted a critical interview with Kevin Hassett about China tariffs.

Quotes from that interview include:

If Trump "puts the additional tariffs on China, wouldn't that hurt the U.S. Economy as well?"

"Tariffs are sales taxes. How is that going to help the American economy?"

"Why would the [Fed] be cutting rates if the economy is doing great?"
He's still going.

Actual Scott quote was "The Democrats just want to sit on the sidelines and do nothing. Why did they run if you don't want to do something?"
Five minutes later, Varney puts Trump's tweet on the screen, saying, "He's watching 'Varney'... the president was watching, and he tweeted about it."
